Kitwe Council Directors Accuse Town Clerk of Treating Them Like Pupils

Directors at the Kitwe City Council have complained that they are being treated like secondary school pupils by Town Clerk Mbulo Seke.

Some directors have said in separate interviews that Seke has been running the Council like a secondary school.

However, others have said Seke has been taken to Kitwe City Council to ensure sanity in the management of the local authority.

“What is sad is that it does not matter who you are…the other day I was embarrassed with the way I was being talked to in the presence of my junior officer,” one of the Directors said.

Meanwhile, it is believed that some Councillors are having a tough time as the new Town Clerk seems to have sealed all loopholes that were being used to allocate land illegally.

The Councillors are said to be upset as they can no longer sell pieces of land as the case had been in the past.

“Ask around, none of these Councillors are happy with his coming, he has made it very difficult for them to engage in illegal land allocations. Well it depends, others are saying he is okay but the majority don’t want him,” said a Council employee anonymously.

Mbulo Seke exchanged with Bornwell Luangwa who is said to have been tolerant and is currently in solwezi.

    Welcome news if this is true. At East Of Garneton area a well planned settlement is being messed up by illegal plot allocations on road reserves by councilors who connive with council officials. Hope the new town clerk will reverse the rot, stop the rot.

    This is what we have been saying, we are generally a very corrupt society and we need to acknoweldge and start working agaignst this cancer. “Ask around, none of these Councillors are happy with his coming, he has made it very difficult for them to engage in illegal land allocations. Well it depends, others are saying he is okay but the majority don’t want him,” said a Council employee anonymously.” this statement is a mouthful.

    Corruption and thieving in our land has become a notifiable issue and must be treated with the seriousness that it deserves or it will engulf our great nation. What is worrying is that some of our loudest in our society are the most corrupt. Very sad indeed.

    Keep it up Mr Seke, if they continue complaining change from treating them like they are in secondary school and start treating them like they are in primary school.
    Government workers they want too much freedom at work, they prefer working hard under a white person to their fellow black skinned people, these people should change.

    Well done Mr T.C ! We need sanity and order in these local authorities.This is the calibre of leadership Zambians deserve.No room to to respect and worship corrupt directors.Kitwe is luck to have a patriotic and well focussed leader.

    Ma rubbish yavuta pa kitwe. Sanity must come back to the council. Illegal plot allocations, some properties not on valuation roll, illegal extensions of plot and no one bothers to follow up… Clean it Bo Mbulo!!! … Is long overdue

    Well done mr seke, councillors think being a councillor’s to sell plots,mr seke, srew them so that they know that they’re there to bring development to the people, not enriching themselves.
